   Jun-24-09 Nakamura vs V Akobian, 2009 (replies)
lostthefight: SetNoEscape - Are you really comparing Hedge to Judit Polgar? Only my opinion, but that might be a bad example. Preparation these days of course means computers. So if you say someone prepped the line it means he came to the position and let the machine run for half an hour to ...

lostthefight: A great champion and a relatively nice and well-rounded person for a chess player. Happy 140th Doc.
   Oct-23-08 Anand vs Kramnik, 2008 (replies)
lostthefight: <flapjack: .... How do you spell "comeback" in Russian?> This one I know - Runner-Up. The sickle? This was the sickle?? If so, the hammer must be made of play-dough. Keep dreamin' flaps.
   Aug-31-08 J Arizmendi Martinez vs Grischuk, 2000 (replies)
lostthefight: <dotty hill> Yes. White is in deep trouble. After 15. Be4 black plays Nxe4 16. Nxe4 Qxe4. White is now down a piece with an exposed king and black has several attacking options. 15. Ne2 is no better from the standpoint of winning the game. Black plays Nxe2 16. Qxe2 Qe3+ ...
   Aug-24-08 Short vs Kasparov, 1995 (replies)
lostthefight: <What would black's next move be to hold the draw?> I have no clear idea of the position but my best guess is ...Bxe4; Nxe4 Rxe4; Qc8 Bd8; Qxa6 d5. Black appears to have enough counterplay at that point and the king is relatively well defended against the queen menace. ...

lostthefight: Reshevsky of course you got the answer correct, but your statement that the question was "easy" is dubious. It's not so obscure that nobody cares and it's interesting b/c it propelled the "drawing master" to his only title shot.
   Mar-26-07 Lasker vs N Miniati, 1890 (replies)
lostthefight: 4.Qxe4+ and it looks so sweet for example of not having enough material to take advantage of a highly comprimised position. Clearly black is lost at 31. Kd2, but continues on even after the position is mathematical at 34. Rxc5. I would like to have seen Lasker's ...
   Feb-05-06 Mikhail Botvinnik (replies)
lostthefight: <pazzed paun> <read your history-he was a stooge of the Soviets and not one other player Soviet or non soviet of Botvinik's generation or another has ever said anything else.> Obviously this has irritated some of the kibitzers b/c of pazzed's lack of ability to ...

lostthefight: <tamar> 7. f4 - screwball
   Jan-30-06 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
lostthefight: <RookFile> Right, Byrne definitely knew. <chessforreading> Have the students see if they can find where the forced mate begins. It looks like this site has it starting on move 36. Use computer software to complement the analysis.
